If you’re wondering what your post Brexit Amazon FBA inventory storage limits will be, the good news is that you’ll have a UK and an EU allowance. Amazon have also published further Brexit FAQs to help you prepare your business for the New Year.
What post Brexit Amazon FBA inventory storage limits will I have?
For storage limits taking effect on or after the 1st of January 2021, you will get one set of storage limits in each storage type covering UK inventory, and a second set of storage limits covering inventory across the EU (Germany, France, Italy, Spain and the Netherlands).
There is an Amazon Brexit FBA inventory storage limits FAQ with more information.
Do I have to be VAT registered to sell into Europe after Brexit?
Whether or not you need UK or EU VAT registration numbers will depend on a number of factors including whether you intend to store products on the other side of the border and the level of your sales you make in each country. The VAT Services on Amazon help page provides more information as well as an interactive ‘Find out if you need to register for VAT’ quiz.
Do I now need to set up two separate accounts, one for my UK business and another for EU?
No. You can continue using one seller account to manage all countries into which you are selling. Amazon recommend doing so, as using a unified account will be the easiest way to manage your Amazon stores.
Can I decide which fulfilment centres I send inventory to in the EU?
With Multi-Country Inventory (MCI), you can ship your FBA inventory to Amazon fulfilment centres in multiple countries of your choice across the EU. This will allow you to decide the specific country you inbound shipments to, but you will not be able to decide into which specific fulfilment centres the shipments inbound.
